My Monday MoJo

For some reason I always feel really creative on Monday Mornings. Maybe its the fact that I'm so relieved to have everyone back at school and work, and have some peace and quiet again.

There is so much to do though. A house to tidy after the weekend onslaught, washing to do, floors to wash, plus I look after a friends little one Mondays and Tuesdays from 10.30am.
This morning as I surfed my list of updated blogs, I was really inspired to begin this journal. I love looking at this girls work, she has such a wonderful sense of fun in her work, and always that quirky little twist...it makes me feel happy, and I love visiting her blog! Ive never met her, in fact I suspect she wouldn't even know who I was LOL, but that's beside the point. Anyway loved her life journal pages, such a simple idea, and it really inspired me to do something similar. I followed the link to her original inspiration and was blown away..stunning. Its just what Ive been looking for. Some where to play. No feeling the need to get in looking just so. Somewhere to record what ever I feel like...childhood memories, what we did today, inspirational anythings, funny things the kids did, the nitty gritty bits of life, that are so often hard to complete a whole LO on...especially when many don't have a gorgeous photo to go with them.

For the first time ever, both the bubs went down for a sleep at the same time (they are BOTH still asleep, bless their little hearts) SO....I went for it.




Ive had this 7 gypsies journal laying around for years...perfect. I wanted it to be pretty and girly...its not something I get to do often LOL.














Lots of flowers, some bling, kindy glitz and pretty girly colours.




Ive put tabs on every page...just cause I can. Anything I could find in my stash became fair game to be converted into a tab...it was so much fun!!! I cant wait to start filling it!

Thank you so much for your sweet comments about my blog. It really means a lot.
Jen is such an inspiration hey!
The Life Journal is so much fun. I so need to catch up though.
Looking forward to seeing your pages.

You need to do 'girlie' things more often cause they always look stunning!

Love this journal, just gorgeous.

Hope you're feeling better.

Nic...this is such a fabulous idea... and it looks totally girly and personal... I know what you mean about that feeling of creativity when the home is quiet after the weekend....if only the fairy was whipping around washing and cleaning...it would be so much easier to enjoy the moment...
